LET’S TALK ABOUT CONTENTMENT BY CHIEF OBINNA IYIEGBU, AKA OBI CUBANA
Good morning my fellow Nigerian Youths, today let’s talk about Contentment!!!
Contentment is the state of being happy and satisfied with what is already one’s own. Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want but the realization and satisfaction of/with what you already have.
Often times people think that they will be happy by having a certain amount of possessions or even status.
Sometimes it lasts for a few moments and they find out they are craving more.
Being contented with what you have produces happiness. A person who is not contented will always complain and be sad about everything.
Nobody ever gets exactly everything they want.
There will always be something new.
New problems arise.
Instead of striving for perfection, strive for contentment.
Being contented does not mean you should be stagnant though.
You must still strive to be the best person.
You must still aim to go to the next level.
But you don’t need any of those promotions to be satisfied with your life.
Find a way to be happy with what you already have and you’ll always have exactly what you need.
Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.
So learn to be contented and discover the beauty of life all around you.
Have an amazing week Fam
